Renovations can end up being very costly when handled without a proper plan. Whether it’s the bedroom or the bathroom floor tiles you need to refresh; it’s good to know all the available options that will also save you time and money. So here are some renovation tips to save you money and a list of ideas you can do in a few hours or over the weekend without spending too much.


For most people, floors create the first impression, and that for them is everything. A good flooring may brighten a room. A bad floor on the other hand, can instantly make your house rating drop from a solid ten to one real quick.

If you feel like your floors are unappealing the consider the option of replacing them with budget friendly vinyl tiles. Other cost-friendly flooring ideas include a luxury vinyl plank, vinyl floor stickers and painted linoleum.


Wallpapers are one of the easiest ways to add color and life to your space without too much trouble or special expertise. Depending on your preference, you can have it cover all the walls in your room or keep the cost even lower with just one feature wall. Wallpapers come in a variety of different colors, styles, feel and millions of incredible designs. And the advantages of having such variety is that they provide you with many options to play around with and get creative. This option can be easier, more cost-friendly and personal compared to taking down or repainting an entire wall. 


As a popular saying goes, don’t move, improve. And the same can be said with your stuff, especially when you are looking for renovation tips to save you money. For instance you can reupholster and revitalise a tired looking sofa with a new fabric covering or give life to an old table or stool by adding a statement accessory, like a some fresh florals or by artistically arranging coffee table books. This saves you from buying new furniture that will also wear and get dull with time in the end anyway. 

Another way to reinvigorate is to change the positions of your items in your space. If you have gotten tired of seeing your furnishings in the same areas, don’t be afraid of turning them around or tweaking their arrangement a little. Even moving them to different rooms in your home can do wonders too.


Mirrors when strategically positioned can reflect light and give that coveted illusion of space. Simply adding a mirror to your room is an effortless and budget friendly way that quickly transforms the space.


Your home will age with time. This is inevitable. Often parts of it that initially looked sparkling and new can become dated really quickly like your sink countertop. And when left without proper maintenance, this area can become problematic, no matter how clean or nicely arranged you leave it. If your bathroom or kitchen sink is faulty and leaking, seeking the services of local plumbers early enough will save you costly repairs in future. You could also schedule regular checkups to ensure smooth operation and to avoid dealing with future issues.
